    House speaker says --"Trump would 'belittle' the presidential debates"
    Pelosi says Biden shouldn't debate Trump: "I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with him"

    "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested openly Thursday that former Vice President Joe Biden cancel his three scheduled debates with President Trump because the commander-in-chief would "belittle" the forum and engage in "skullduggery."

    However, Biden has another plan---  Biden told MSNBC Thursday he's still planning on showing up to the high-profile faceoffs with the president.

    "As long as the [debate] commission continues down the straight and narrow as they have, I'm going to debate him," Biden said, adding that he'd call out any Trump lies in real-time.

    "I’m going to be a fact-checker on the floor as I’m debating him," he added.

    I am with Nancy --  Biden should save himself the trouble and just bail on the debates. In my opinion, Trump will have an open field to batter him badly, and all the fact-checkers in the world will do little on a live debate, millions will walk away from it believing what they choose, and never check what fact-checker have to report.

    Trump uses "rope a dope" tactics and clearly takes off the gloves for no one, as proved with his debates with Hillary Clinton. There is no time for on the spot fact-checking in a live debate, as Joe seems to believe he will have that opinion.  In my view, Joe ended himself in his basement with his inappropriate live gaffes, not to mention his affinity to become angry quickly.  He can't use COVID to get out of the debates, but he can take a page out of Nancy's book and claim Skulduggery...

    If I were Joe, it might be safer to stay in that basement. 

    Do you think Joe Biden should debate President Trump why or why not?

      This from the woman that "belittled" the office of the President by tearing up the required State of the Union address?  Comical!

        I have learned if Nancy is anything she is comical. What are your thoughts on the debates? Do you think Joe will be up to the task of debating Trump?

          No, he cannot debate Trump - he just doesn't seem to have the mental faculties to do so.

          On the other hand, the left will again exaggerate, spin and change Trump's words (already bad enough without their machinations) into something they can use to convince themselves, and perhaps others, that Biden is the only choice.

          So maybe he can, after all.  As long as listeners care more for what they WANT to hear rather than what is actually SAID, it might work.

            I think we can safely say most that have made up their minds to vote for good old Joe will do so even if he goes off the trolly at a debate. I think if he debates it will be a train wreck. And that train is called the Trump train. This is actually a  fascinating campaign. Never witnessed one like it.

            I hesitate to think  --- what is the rest of the world thinking about all of this?

      I am sorry Nancy Pelosi, whom I like has belittle herself much to advice Jne Biden in a height of folly! Shame.                                    Pelosi, the first woman, and only person in America political history to tore to piece 'state of the nation address' could not ever meant well for Trump. Something in the air.

        Nancy certainly has offered Biden a way out of the debates.  In my view, her advice at this point is very sound.advice. He should not debate Trump at all...

        Let him go ahead. And as others want to hear his mind, let him go ahead, pronto.

    It would be most refreshing for Joe to rise to the occasion. You never know what is within him.
    AND I WANT TO KNOW!

    I want Joe to debate for his own sense of having a self.  For his own sense of opening up according to his reality and his inner sense of will / will power and self-inspired initiative.
    Let us see what is in his (own) MIND. Let him USE IT!

    Let him  B E 
                                HONEST JOE !!!

      We saw it today! It was so refreshing to see him blame Trump instead of China for CV19! It was so refreshing to see him almost loose his temper at a false allegation toward Trump! He said with such emotion: "Who does he think he is?!" Good work, Joe!

      And he spoke so clearly, with so few flubs in his very sincere reaction to terrible Trump!

    I really think that Trump will be kind and compassionate toward him. He will listen to Biden with great and true interest. Trump will respond with the facts as he see them. And Biden will present the fact-checks!

    ... and if Biden is polite, Trump will be polite.

    I will be most disappointed if it doesn't play out like this.
    I hope Trump reads this and realizes he will be letting me down if he's rude in the least to poor Biden, who I greatly empathize with. Poor thing.

    After all, he was a stutterer and with his mother's and fathers help, he overcame it. Actually, he was given many breaks in life along with his heartaches, so there must be something hidden within him that is worthy and good.
    I certainly hope he debates Donald Trump.

    Do it Joe!
    For your mom and your dad and ME!

      I hope you are right, I too hope Trump keeps it low key, but I have my doubts. He as of late has been very much belittled by some of Biden's basement FYI's... I just have memories of some of the stingers he shot at Hillary.  I don't think he needs to attack Biden, Biden is his own worst enemy when it comes to live TV.

        Trump needs to realize who he is dealing with, for sure. People who will stop at nothing to tit any tat.


        By the way, if Biden gets in, guess who will be relieved of all the tariffs  recently installed ?

      Gear up to it. Never mind the outcome, but watch your left leg. I bet both Trump and Biden read this.

        what are you talking about? Trump certainly did NOT read this!

          ... but he seemed very out of sorts that night. I could tell he was worn out and run down. He needs to rest.


          I also tell him to get the heck out of the hospital.
          Chicken soup, Trump!

              Good old Pence. Has the law back him up?
